           Summary: EBV (fn:boolean) and xs:anyURI
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLT
           Version: Candidate Recommendation
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows 2000
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Functions and Operators

It would be more consistent if EBV of xs:anyURI values worked
as if they were xs:string values, rather than throwing type

Inasmuch as EBV is defined by reference to fn:boolean,
and xs:anyURI values can in general be promoted to xs:string,
this would seem to be the case. On the other hand, the rules
given for fn:boolean speak of specific argument types and say that
in any other case, a type error is raised.

We believe an explicit clarification for xs:anyURI is in order here.
